They had played just one team with a winning record during their first six games.
San Francisco submitted one of the most dominant efforts that the National Football League has seen in the 2019 season, particularly when talking about playing a good team. I know, I know, Allen is undefeated in his professional career and has looked superb so far in 2019, but the Niners are allowing the least amount of passing yards this year (801) and they're tied for the fourth-most takeaways at 13, 7 of which have been interceptions.
To stop this, the Panthers need to make them throw the ball early on - if they're able to run the ball and run the ball from the start of the game, it will simply tire the Panthers defense out and make it hard for them to hold their own later in the game.
As a team, the Panthers only had 76 yards in the first half while the 49ers had 254.
If you reside in the Bay Area, today's Niners game will be broadcast live on television on KTVU FOX 2, and will feature play-by-play announcer Dick Stockton and color commentator Mark Schlereth. "You never expect to just blow someone out like that, especially a good team like that". Samuel entered the game with 15 catches for 168 yards.
The defense, which has played lights-out throughout the season, continued its strong play. The result was seven sacks, three interceptions and a long day at the office for the backup in Carolina.
NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport told Murph & Mac on Monday morning that the performance didn't just put Bosa at the top of the Defensive Rookie of the Year power rankings, but in the conversation for Defensive Player of the year. "Thought he should've scored". Arik Armstead had two sacks for the 49ers.
First and foremost, the Panthers are not only winners of four-straight with a quarterback in Kyle Allen who hasn't lost yet in five professional starts, but they're also a very well-coached team coming in off a bye week.
